It's What's Happening, Baby changed the face of television in 1965.

Famed New York disc jockey “Murray The K” (Muray Kaufman) became known as “The Fifth Beatle” when he befriended John, Paul, George & Ringo at the start of the musical British Invasion of the 1960s. In addition to presenting all-star rock and soul concerts at the historic Brooklyn Fox Theatre, Murray The K hosted a legendary CBS-TV special, It’s What’s Happening Baby, which will be seen for the first time in over 50 years on Monday, March 8 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

The program, originally created with the U.S. government to encourage summer employment of teenagers, features over a dozen iconic artists singing some of the greatest hits of all time, including Ray Charles, Dionne Warwick, The Righteous Brothers, The Supremes, The Miracles, Johnny Rivers, Marvin Gaye, Herman’s Hermits, The Temptations and Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles, The Drifters, Herman’s Hermits, Johnny Rivers, Chuck Jackson, Mary Wells, The Dave Clark Five, and Gary Lewis and the Playboys, Jan & Dean, and Cannibal and the Headhunters.
